As we approach the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack—the event that led to the War in Afghanistan—America projects a much-altered identity and faces a significantly altered geopolitical landscape.

Communist China features with unprecedented prevalence in this reality. An opportunistic entity, the Chinese Communist Party appears readied, beyond all others, to ingratiate itself to the emerging Taliban controllers of Afghanistan.

In this episode, we investigate the reasons why.

Aided by the insights of Middle East and South and East Asia experts, James M. Dorsey and Antonio Graceffo, we explore the intricacies of the tensions and loyalties of these two seemingly disparate entities, and how their potential alliance would impact America and the world at large.

Hosted by NTD journalist Brendon Fallon, Wide Angle is following the latest political developments in the United States and abroad, and finding the connection between these and the larger global trends of our times.
